Tennessee knows it must improve defense to stay at No. 1

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) The Tennessee Volunteers believe the best way for them to stay atop the rankings is by upping their defensive intensity.

"When you go back to where we were two years ago and where we were last year, the biggest change in our program was when we got to where we could defend people," said coach Rick Barnes, who's in his fourth season at Tennessee.

The Vols say that focus on defense has been missing at times this season, even as they've moved up in the rankings. Tennessee (16-1, 5-0 SEC) now wants to make sure history doesn't repeat itself.
